Each part of your treatment may have a cost. For example, if you have surgery, in addition to the cost of the surgery itself you may have separate charges for things like anesthesia and the time you spend at the hospital after the surgery.
Doctors aren't likely to know how much a procedure or course of treatment will cost on your insurance plan. But they can usually direct you to the people
who can get the information, such as:
Ask your doctor about any hidden costs involved in the
procedure or treatment (follow-up visits, anesthesiologist fees).
